Her size is small, but her presence commanding. Her stature poised with grace and humility. She doesn't seek attention, yet no one can look away. Slender, elegant and mysterious – just who is the lady in red?
The Mei Ren Jian (美人肩) is a classic style Zisha teapot. The name translates to a "beauty's shoulder." The slender elegance of this style of teapot matches well with an elegant gong-fu tea brewing session. Made from Xiao Hong Ni, this pot works particularly well with more aromatic styles of tea like Dancong or Taiwanese Oolong teas.
Usage and care:
Rinse and season the teapot before use. Here's a quick guide to show you how. As the clay is porous and teapot is unglazed, dedicate one tea type per pot (or if you wish to take it to the next level, dedicate only one tea per pot). Hand-wash only with water and NEVER EVER wash with soap or detergent. The last thing you want is soapy suds flavouring your next brew.
